Review: The Rifles – The Great Escape

8/10

Clashing classical rock to modern day indie and resembling the likes of Kasabian in their heavier tracks is the phenomenal Londoner’s ‘The Rifles’ sophomore album ‘The Great Escape’. Combining buoyant melodies alongside remarkable vocals that really do stick, they present a flawless stunner of an album which is being critically acclaimed. A catchy and almost rebellious background is assembled throughout as it becomes obvious they aren’t some other bullshit generic band trying to grasp the charts for fame and fortune – you can tell these guys are musically out there and standing out above any British newcomer they shouldn’t be overlooked. You can’t help to appreciate the fantastic lyrics in ‘The Great Escape’, and simple chimes alongside fast paced clapping in ‘Winter Calls’, the rhythm in both songs shows the bands true potential – and maybe we haven’t seen their best work yet?
